Operation Homecoming.

Yes, you read it right! HOMECOMING!! It's so soon. So close but so far away.. or that's what Holly & I say. I can't believe that we've tackled this deployment with barely any troubles and problems.

November was NOT my month. Sailor had left in September & everything was going good - minus our microwave deciding to basically stop working the same exact week Sailor left. Yeah, the curse started early. Buying a new microwave was going to come sooner or later.. but a car? Yeah, we were trying to get another 3 or 4 years out of it but I suppose ol' Jose had another plan for us.

November 7th, 2 months after Sailor left, my car was stolen right outta my parking space at my apartment. I was devastated.. When I saw where he had crashed & totaled it - I flipped. In reality, it wasn't all that bad but there is a major dent in the red light pole where he crashed. I got money back from my insurance but since it was already 10 years old, they couldn't give me much but they had the nerve to tell me I may have to pay $1k for the stupid pole. Really? Uh.. no. Thankfully, I didn't have to. Plus, whose dumb ass idea was that anyways?

ANYWHO.. (I really got off topic.. kinda) after all the troubles and problems, we've made it this far! & I'm preparing for Sailor to finally sleep in the same bed & trash the apartment. I can say I don't miss sharing a bathroom with him but it's one of those things ;)

Reality didn't really set it until today when I saw this:
110302-N-2937R-224 PACIFIC OCEAN (March 2, 2011) The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) transits the Pacific Ocean. The Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group is returning from a scheduled deployment to the U.S. 7th and 5th Fleet areas of responsibility supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts.

Kudos to (here)! They're in the same damn ocean. & almost the same time zone <3 I'm sooooo excited.

kinda a pointless post, eh?
